Howdy, I’m Leah!
I'm a licensed massage therapist and massage instructor, and Vodder Certified Manual Lymphatic Drainage Practitioner. I'm the owner of Align Massage Co. here in Austin, TX and am the founder of Lymph Love Club! We specialize in navigating our clients through their unique healing journeys with chronic illness, hormone imbalances, and toxicity issues using the powerful combination of Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Myofascial Release Techniques. Vodder Technique separates itself from other lymphatic modalities because its clinical grade and is backed by scientific research. This gentle modality is perfect for those with nervous system dysregulation or a high toxic burden (Herxheimer reaction due to Lyme, mold, or heavy metals). If this is you, other modalities may not be suitable.
Healing is hard, and massage is great, but when I began implementing lymphatic work into my treatment protocols back in 2020, I noticed an immediate and measurable improvement in my client's symptoms that traditional bodywork just couldn't touch. Having spent years working within the deeper layers of our musculoskeletal system, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. This unassuming, feather light touch was actually expediting the healing process and impacting my clients on a cellular level.
Something tells me that many of their stories are similar to your own. Most of my clients had been diagnosed with a chronic condition after being passed around from specialist to specialist. These experts told them to get comfortable being uncomfortable because there wasn't much they could do help them. They were told to mitigate their symptoms by using medications, expensive treatments, and restrictive lifestyle practices. Thankfully they didn't believe them and they had an innate sense that there HAD to be more to their story than this.
Helping others transform tragic into magic and rewriting these ending in real life is what led me to create Lymph Love Club to share what I know with you! After successfully helping a few family members manage their symptoms from across the U.S., I realized that distance did not have to hold someone back from working with me. I put the information into my first course, Intro To Lymph Flow. This course will allow you to learn about your lymphatic system, why it's so powerful, and how to manipulate it using your own two hands. By learning how this system works, and what it needs to function optimally, you can empower yourself and gain autonomy in your healing from home.
My clients have been where you are. In their darkest hour, with barely enough energy to care for themselves or their families. They had more bad days than were necessary because of modern medicine's overcommitment to government funded pharmaceutical and medical device research.
It doesn't have to be this way for you too. We need both western and eastern approaches...but big ships turn slowly and many individuals are forced to take matters into their own hands. I'm here to put these necessary tools into the hands of those motivated individuals who are ready to take ownership of their body and health, and to rewrite their story!
In addition to my personal experience working 1-on-1 with lymphatic system issues of all kinds, I continue to take advanced lymphatic certifications and am always evolving as a licensed medical professional so that I can best serve and support you.
After you've completed Intro To Lymph Flow, you will have the necessary foundations in place. In addition, a 1:1 lymphatic coaching program will be available should you need additional virtual support. A membership platform will also be available (October 2022) for ongoing education where you can learn how to target specific health conditions using lymphatic drainage protocols to manage, minimize, and potentially reverse symptoms of chronic disease and pain. If you're struggling with debilitating conditions like migraines, fibromyalgia, endometriosis, EDS, Lyme, mold toxicity, CFS, Long-Hauler's Syndrome- you name it, this membership program is for YOU. You will continue your education and learn from leading experts in other fields to help you connect the dots along the way.
No system in our body works independently. In order to be vibrant in health we must approach every level and address each system. Your lymphatic system is designed to do just that and I am honored to have the opportunity to teach it. It's not always about a "cure" or being symptom-free, but a level of healing, empowerment, self advocacy, and a quality of life (that you may not have thought possible) is here. The lymphatic system is the key that unlocks the future of medicine.
